    I am thinking of doing this as well. What axles and hardware did you go with to accomplish this?

    I had Quick Performance in Ames Iowa do the work, I took them a clean axel housing and they welded it up for me and sold me the axels for $600. That included welding the center to the tubes, beautiful welding.

      I called my local wrecking yard and told them what I wanted, three days later I had exactly what I wanted 3.73 gear LD locking diff with drum brakes. I later put disks on it but drums are what I wanted at the time. $150.00

        Rangers have a 2" offset of the pinion. I would run it as is if the Ranger rear is what you are after.

        Here is a good read if you are looking into an 8.8 swap, Ranger or Explorer:
        The Ford Explorer 8.8-Inch Axle Swap


        Good luck on whichever way you go.
